Question description

Empirical research is the foundation to scholarly research and scholarly writing. An empirical article is defined as one that presents original research conducted or personally observed by the author(s). The articles you select will include the following elements: a description of the study, an introduction, a research question, an explanation of the study's methodology, a presentation of the results of the study, and a conclusion that discusses the results and suggests topics for further study. This assignment will help you locate and identify empirical research studies in the area of leadership ethics.

General Requirements:

Use the following information to ensure successful completion of the assignment:

  • Print the "Comparison Matrix." The "Comparison Matrix" contains a table with three columns and eight rows. The columns are titled Article 1, Article 2, and Article 3 and the rows are titled Title/Author, Purpose of the Study, Research Question(s), Literature Review, Sample Population(s), Limitations, and Results/Conclusions.
  • Print the "Empirical Research Checklist."
  • This assignment uses a grading rubric. Instructors will be using the rubric to grade the assignment; therefore, students should review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the assignment criteria and expectations for successful completion of the assignment.


Go to the GCU library. Use the "Find Journal Articles" search feature found on the home page of the GCU eLibrary to locate three empirical articles on leadership practices that relate to the ethical use of power, authority, persuasion, and/or motivation. You may use the "Empirical Research Checklist" to determine if a study is empirical.

After locating and reading the empirical articles, provide the appropriate information in the cells for the Article 1, Article 2, and Article 3 columns of the "Comparison Matrix."

Use the information from the completed "Comparison Matrix" to write a paper of 750-1,000 words that compares the three empirical articles. The paper will include the following elements:

  3. Comparison of the purposes of each study
  4. Comparison of the authors' statements of why the study is important
